DNA Profile is Private? A Florida Judge Just Said Otherwise
Genetic profiles have always been private for everyone but a judge in Florida is about to change that. A detective from Florida requested a warrant to go into and see GEDmatch database that has nearly one million users. This is the first time a judge has arepoved a warrant like this and doing so can bring complications on genetic privacy. The judge allowing this warrant is giving other agencies ideas to request for search warrants on other DNA sites. This means no one’s genetic profile will be safe and their information could be used by anyone.
